PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Mission China Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce an open competition for awards available through our Public Diplomacy Grants Program. This Annual Program Statement outlines our broad funding priorities, strategic themes, and the procedure for submitting requests for funding. Applications for programs will be accepted until July 30, 2021. Applicants may apply for funding up to US$30,000. Applications that make clear their careful consideration of effective use of resources, (including shared contributions from their own or other organizations), will be given favorable consideration during review. Please carefully follow all instructions below and use the grant application document and budget template found on our website. Purpose of APS Grants: Mission China invites proposals for projects that strengthen ties between the United States and China. Competitive proposals should support a priority program area (see below). While not required, especially competitive proposals will include content or connections with American expert(s), organization(s), or institution(s) that will promote increased cooperation between the people of the United States, the U.S. Mission in China, and the Chinese people after the program concludes. Finally, we note that a robust Chinese civil society has the potential to benefit U.S. citizens present in China during times of personal crisis or natural disaster, and our funding priorities reflect this, as well. Priority Program Areas: • Enhancing US-China relations: Projects that support the enhancement of U.S.-China people-to-people relations, particularly understanding of the United States among the Chinese people. • U.S. Business in China: Programs that amplify or otherwise provide a framework for U.S. businesses to share American values, including but not limited to specific corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in partnership or within Chinese communities. • Education, cultural exchange, and diversity and inclusion. These may include expanding access for persons with disabilities, women’s empowerment, LGBTQI rights, and the preservation of minority cultures, especially including projects to ensure sustainable incomes and prosperity for minority communities and those with otherwise limited access to networks of support. • Technology and Ethics: Programs that provide opportunities for discussion and collaboration on the intersection between technology, standards, privacy, AI, social media, and ethics, and its impact on the future of work. • Environment: Collaboration in sustainable development, sustainable finance, energy issues, eco-tourism, and other related fields. Mutual sharing of expertise in environmental protection including of habitats and wildlife unique to China. Public outreach on limiting and mitigating the impact of climate change. • Health: Projects that promote a greater understanding of the value of health cooperation between China and US to improve the health of both countries and the world, including increasing understanding of U.S.-China cooperation on health research, supporting policy development, and enhancing program implementation. • English Language: Projects that support innovative, interactive teaching and learning of the English language. Projects that directly support ongoing efforts of the Mission English Language Office will be especially welcome.
